Favourite - With or Without Words (and why)

Welcome to As You Like It Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something 
which gives you a warm "inner glow" of pride, without lots of entry rules.


Usually we provide 2 contrasting options for you to choose from. 
Join us by using your favourite option in your creation. 

To be eligible to win our prize, or top-3 spot, 
you must explain why you've made your choice,
so we can understand why you like it so much!

eg, if the theme is 'favourite animal' and you decide on 'rabbits', tell us why.
eg, you love Thumper, the bunny from Bambi !

So get crafting and remember the main requirement in creating is 
to have fun and enjoy your crafting time!

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite: With or Without words / a sentiment (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I'm often guilty of leaving out a sentiment on my cards, but I actually do prefer it when I remember to include one, even if it's a simple 'happy birthday'.  

Often times I will leave a card without a sentiment if I'm not sure what it will be used for.  My favorite is to have a words, especially when you have the perfect stamp that says exactly what you want to say.

I always forgot to leave room for a sentiment but now I don't think I ever miss, especially a die cut one.

I sometimes put a sentiment on my cards if I can find an appropriate one. When I make cards not knowing who the recipient will be I wait till I use it and put on a suitable sentiment. 

I do like having a sentiment or a word on my card or other project. It makes the card complete. Sometimes when I don't know who I am sending my card, I wait with the sentiment until I know for who and what occasion it will be.

I much prefer to have words on my cards even if it's just a "hello".  I like to know what the cards are for and I agree with Wilma that they feel unfinished without anything on them.

With words for me. I love creating handmade cards because you can say exactly what is on your mind. In this case it was created on the computer and printed out.

I always make cards with words/sentiments on it. Without words/sentiments my cards don't feel finished or complete. 

It's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
